Let's keep this thread full of pictures and updates!
Here's an update on my unofficial contest belt for the Roy x Cone contest, natural vegetable tanned double-horse butt (17.5 oz).
Been trying to get it ready for NY when the contest will start.
I've tanned it gently in the sunlight for a couple of days, and have applied 2 layers of horse oil and 1 layer of beeswax on both sides - it has darkened slightly (was white/pink when new), and the classic horsehide grain appearance is popping up:
Should be good to go come 00:01 on the 01/01/11.
15 oz natural skirting evo:
that color is beautiful mike. how much wear do you have on that? six months or so?
Unlucky messenger bag: Action shot:
hey ivan, do you have any evo pics of your messenger bag? i know its only been a few months but i was wondering how its turning out. what leather did he use? im in the process of ordering a chromexcel messenger bag that im really quite excited for.
Quick heads-up regarding the Unlucky project:
The process of material selection and belt design is in it's final phase.
The expression of interest list will be closed this Sunday.
Many thanks for continuously bumping this thread, or I may not have seen it. In. PM'd.
Unlucky project interest-list has now closed! Hopefully I will be able to put up some details, photos and notes about our process by the end of this month P.S. Thank you to all those participating - we'll hopefully get the final little details sorted out and e-mail you the order form soon!
So glad I joined the list. This project is looking sick.
just got my bag in the mail the other day... i was supposed to get it before xmas but it got lost in the mail
Awesome. More elaborate than I like but well done.
holy shit crump that is an awesome design.
what leather did he use?
im getting excited to get my chromexcel messenger ... maybe another week!
Holy shit Crump that is amazing. Details dude. Leathers used, more pics if you can!
the design of the bag is based off the saddleback briefecase
dimensions: about 16"x11.5"x7.5"
materials: cowhide w/ horsehide accents
the accent piece w/ the wing tip design kinda came about later in the development of the bag...i initially didn't plan on having that but after the straps and buckles were put on i decided it needed something else
i came up w/ the shape and idea and asked if he would be able to do the perforations w/ a hole punch and if there would be enough room in the middle for a design...he drew a design, i modified it, and then he finished it off
the bag is amazing
i was very patient waiting for it...it was scheduled to arrive 12/23 but got lost somewhere in transit and i just picked it up at the post office on 1/6
if anyone wants to see more pics just let me know what in particular you want to see and i can snap some photos
